Description 

Little pockets are the trick on this one. Big first move with smears up to mono and 2-finger pockets. Sustained for the first two thirds, then it mellows out a little.

Location 

Up the middle of the face between the cracks at the east end of the cove. Starts on a juggy 2-hand pocket about seven feet up.

This route is actually called Blank Wall. It was first top roped in the early 80's probably by Bruce Hamilton. We always rated it 5.10+ but it is probably about 5.11a. It has been led using trad gear but I would say it's R rated.
